Abstract

Photogrammetry is a method to make a digital three-dimensional (3-D) image of an object by combining photographs. Photogrammetry has potential for a plethora of uses in the apparel field, such as analysis and preservation of historic garments and garment fit. However, further exploration is needed to understand the method. The purpose of this abstract is to research how photogrammetry can be successfully applied to documenting historic clothing. To achieve this purpose, a series of experiments were conducted to identify the procedures that resulted in the highest quality and most accurate measurements of historic clothing. The best method is given camera settings, artifact background, number of photographs taken, distance from subject, lighting, and scale bar position.
